Let's Talk Concealers

Concealers are such small little products that make such a big difference.  Before I got into make-up I never wore concealer, I didn't really understand the use of it and just thought it was for covering spots which I never really suffer with.
Now, however, it's a different story.  I love concealers and trying out new ones.  I could never ever skip this part of my make-up routine even if I was running super late and I always carry a concealer in my handbag wherever I go.
Here are my top 3:
I have two shades of this concealer which came in a little kit that I got for Christmas.  One shade is more yellow toned and the other is more pink.  I generally just mix both of them together and put it under my eye and over my eye to cancel out any redness or veins.  I like the packaging of this so I can throw it in my bag and it doesn't get messy.
This is one of the best drugstore concealers around and is supposed to be a dupe for Nars Creamy concealer.  It comes is 5 shades too so there's something for everyone.  I use this a lot and find it lasts for ages and never creases if I set it properly.
This one has to be my favourite.  I've nearly run out and I'll definitely be repurchasing.  It's very high coverage which is great for me as I suffer with dark undereye circles.  It also lasts all day and can be used to highlight the face too.
Which concealers do you love?  I really want to try the Nars one and also the Maybelline age rewind?

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
